The North American Aerospace Defense command (NORAD) is planning to move its communications gear to a Cold War-era bunker in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

NORAD is the military command that is in charge of scanning North American airspace for enemy missiles or aircrafts. During the Cold War, the aerospace command’s headquarters were located in a half-acre bunker carved into Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado, and designed to withstand a Soviet nuclear attack. The headquarters were moved in 2006 to the Peterson Air Force base in Colorado Springs, and the Cheyenne Mountain base was designated as a back-up site.

After years of being on “warm standby,” it seems the Cold War-era bunker is now getting a substantial upgrade. NORAD plans to shift its communication gear back to the site.
